Support a Known Leader in Physics

Physics alumni and friends are in great company. The CU-Boulder Department of Physics is a global leader in teaching, learning and research. Physics is ranked as one of the top 10 departments among public universities and a top 20 department overall. Most notably, the department is ranked as the best graduate program in the nation in the field of atomic, molecular and optical physics. Also, the department received First Prize in the 2008 CU President’s Award for Outstanding Academic Leadership in Graduate and Professional School Student Success.

Physics students have the opportunity to study and work with some of the best teachers and scientists in the field. The department hosts three Nobel laureates, two McArthur fellows, six members of the National Academy of Sciences, and four members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Students benefit from a wealth of experience, and when they leave, they take with them a myriad of accomplishments—and more importantly—a life-changing experience that will set the course of their future.

By continuing your support of the Physics Department, you become an integral part in helping us continue these time-honored and vital efforts. Your support helps us continue to provide a high-caliber education for our students, produce ground-breaking research and reach out to make science and physics relevant to the public at large.
